The New World.
Bu there’s many box-office bombs which gained a lot of cult following.
“Heaven’s Gate” is not as terrible as its reputation makes it out to be. I plan on seeing it again to see if my revised opinion of it can be raised even further.
On the subject of bombs, one that fascinates me is “Raise the Titanic” which was such a fiasco on initial release.
After having been derided as unrealistic trash, and even after the discovery of Titanic in pieces on the seabed, the film now has a sentimental following. It is as if a lot of audience members really wanted the raising to happen; such is the power of the memory of the ship.
The score, by John Barry, is majestic and has become a collector’s favorite.
Wow man I had no idea Waterworld is so good.

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Heaven’s Gate is one of my favourite films.Fight Club Someone said it wasn’t successful, so I’ll add it, like that film a lot.Once Upon a Time in America Never got a proper cinematic release, I consider this the best film ever made so…Novecento Was never going to be successful but it is one of my favourites.Barry Lyndon I think this was a flop, anyhow, masterpiece.Once Upon a Time in the West My favourite western.The King of Comedy Great film.
James was one of the worst flops cause it was made on bad faith.
Pitt and others starred in it knowing there was no way it would make a cent even if it was marketed like a hit, same with Killing Them Softly, and The American and Haywire
Yeah, I’m going with The Long Goodbye and The King of Comedy as well. Both films were years ahead of their time.
Rules of the Game, La Gueule Ouverte, and La Peau Douce
@Lights Thanks for recalling M. Night Shamalyn I don’t really know if I’m crazy about his work and I didn’t really care for the Sixth Sense, but I think The Village doesn’t get enough praise. I like what happens in the story. It really takes you for a loop.
Vertigo. It didn’t do very well at the box office, but I believe it is Hitchcock’s greatest film. Psycho, a close second.
